I sewed the buttons on my Tangled Yoke Cardigan last night, as intended. Since I didn’t have any matching thread, I pulled a strand of the two-ply Felted Tweed apart, twisted the single to make it stronger (finger spinning) and used my home-made “thread” to sew with. I felt so clever, just had to share.
I headed out to the front yard to take some photos. I have to say, doing a self photo shoot is awkward at best, generally makes me feel silly and narcissistic, and usually results in photos I’d rather not share. Today was better than usual.
I knit size 38″, ended up with a 37″ sweater (gives me about 1.5″ ease)
Rowan Felted Tweed, “Watery;” 7 balls.
Knitpicks fixed metal 32″ circular needle, size 2.5 (3mm)
The button bands do gap and pull a bit when they are fully fastened, as the fabric is very soft and pliable; however, I don’t anticipate this being a big issue, as I rarely button my cardigans completely. I suppose I could add some ribbon to the back side to reinforce them if it becomes a bother.
I really love this sweater, and it will probably be the most-worn in my wardrobe. It’s very light, but plenty warm, and the color really is great. The pattern is written well and was easy to follow – highly recommended!
All for now!
